    The nice thing about this Playbook is that it can connect to wifi and then go to bluetooth or cellular when it loses the wifi signal. A lot of connection options and it has two cameras too…one in front and one in back.

    Wanna say as well that the good thing about this Playbook is that it can link to wifi and then go to bluetooth or mobile when it loses the wifi signal. A great deal of link options and it has two cameras too…one in front and one in back.

    This is one of the reason a couple of my friends and me didn’t buy the BB Playbook. We were told by others that it doesn’t support Email right away.

    BB isn’t really advisable to use when you are using it for business or work. Aside from it doesn’t support emails right away, sometimes they cannot acquire signals. BB is only for social use actually. Unlike other tablets.
